"The Blue MBA has a ‘buzz’ which I really enjoy. It is a great programme for bright young managers who have made shipping their business and want the professional tools to succeed. Teaching mid-career students with the knowledge and experience to participate is an exciting challenge and the one-week module system provides the ideal framework.”
